Smooth Scrolling Now Available in Mozilla Nightly Builds

Tuesday March 25th, 2003

Thanks to the fix for bug 174049, the latest Mozilla nightly builds now support IE-style smooth scrolling. This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, use about:config to add the boolean preference general.smoothScroll with a value of true. To disable smooth scrolling, simply set the value of the pref to false. If you're not sure how to modify hidden preferences using about:config then you'll want our handy new guide, How To Modify Hidden Preferences Using about:config.

Type-ahead find? poor-quality? are you mad???

I was a bit sceptical about TAF at first, but now I could not live without it.

The place where it is a real killer-feature is for any programming documentation. <http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/api/index.html> <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/propidx.html> <http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/index/elements.html> etc.

Just start typing the thing you want to look up, and you are straight there.

I am amazed that such a simple little feature can be so useful.

Tim.
